Mrs. Betsy was such a caring, loving, and wonderful lady in so many ways. I'll always cherish the memories I made with her growing up as a youth at Hood's Grove and the continued memories I made with her as an adult. She was a big supporter in my teaching career and made a great impact on my children's lives. The love she showed to me and my family will always be cherished. She was a bright light in our church and will be so deeply missed. Prayers go out to the family today and in the days to come as you adjust to a life without her. Donna Lee
